Oglala Sioux Tribe’s VP Tom Poor Bear Denied Entry to See Leonard Peltier; Tribal ID Not Good Enough

COLEMAN, FLORIDA — After traveling a long distance, Oglala Sioux Tribe Vice President Tom Poor Bear was denied access UPS Coleman I where he went to visit Leonard Peltier, who is incarcerated at Coleman.

Poor Bear was told by the prison guard at the receptionist desk that she could not accept his valid tribal photo identification. Vice President Poor Bear recalls that on a previous visit with Leonard Peltier at the same facility nearly two years ago, the very same guard accepted the same identification and allowed VP Poor Bear to enter the prison.
